ConsThe characters aren't always easy to like.

After the murder of her father, fourteen year-old girl Mattie Ross hires grizzled Marshal Reuben J ‘Rooster’ Cogburn to track down the killer – ‘gun for hire’ Tom Chaney. It takes somebody with ‘true grit’ to bring a man to justice and that is what Mattie believes Cogburn has. But as they embark...

Lots of careful planning and thoughtful consideration are required when attempting to remake a 60’s classic. A job made even harder when that classic turns out to be a celebrated John Wayne film. So it must come as a sign of hope and comfort that with a string of successes in the Western genre...

ConsA Western!

Product Information : True Grit (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

A pure Western in which a lawman tracks a criminal, TRUE GRIT, based on Charles Portis's novel, reunited John Wayne with director Henry Hathaway (THE SONS OF KATIE ELDER). Wayne is crotchety U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn, who would rather stay home than chase criminals. He heeds the call, though, when 14-year-old Mattie Ross (Kim Darby) calls on him to avenge her father's death at the hands of a man who has escaped into Indian territory. Glen Campbell is a Texas ranger who accompanies them for his own reasons. Wayne reprised the role six years later in ROOSTER COGBURN.
